New Covenant will be having our first “Friday Night Out” on Friday, October 13 from 6:00 – 8:45 pm for Foster, Adoptive, and Single parents to relax, go out to dinner, or to have an evening of fun. Dinner, activities, playtime, and a snack is provided for the children.
To sign up your children, please contact JoAnn Simpson-Miller or by phone or call 405.348.9160 with the names and ages of your children no later than Wednesday, Sept. 6th for your children’s reservations. We want to make sure that we have enough food and activities planned for the different ages of children. Please let JoAnn know if your child has food restrictions and please mark all clothing and backpacks.
If you are willing to volunteer for all or for part of this evening, please contact JoAnn Simpson-Miller or by calling 405.348.9160. The number of children that we can accept for this outreach depends on the number of volunteers! Thank you! We still need volunteers for Friday Night Out.
Are You Willing to Help?
· “Thank you for giving us this opportunity to have a quiet dinner with friends. We NEVER get to see them!”
· “You are so kind to give us this time to grocery shop without distractions.”
· “WOW! We never have time to talk with each other. Tonight we had a quiet few hours to ourselves.”
These are just a few of the comments we hear from parents of foster and adopted children. Many of these parents are caring for 5-6 children. Children need these foster parents! Will we be able to continue giving time to these wonderful parents that take in foster children? That is a big question.
In order for New Covenant to continue providing this ministry to parents in our community, we need groups to volunteer their time!
Would your Sunday School class or small group be willing to help one Friday this school year? We can only continue Friday Night Out with people willing to donate their time for one Friday. The hours are 6:00-8:45 PM and the mission outreach is usually the first Friday of the month. We only need 5-6 people each Friday Night Out. You could split the time with your friends from your Sunday School class or Small group but we need the hours of 6:00-8:45 covered by adults.
Fortunately, the Mission Team has stepped up and are covering the Friday Night Out for October. YEA!! The dates for this mission outreach are: Nov. 3, Dec. 1, Feb. 2, March 2, and April 6. Are you willing to help? If you have a class or small group willing to help with one of these dates, please contact JoAnn Simpson-Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org), or you may sign up at the Connection Point on Sunday morning. New Covenant provides dinner, activities, and a safe environment for these foster children, adopted children, and children of single parents. Thank you for considering helping with this mission outreach!
